  • Does someone have breakfast on his mind?
Listening to the Cardinals game on the radio and cringing every five seconds when Cardinals broadcaster Mike Shannon butchers the pronunciation of Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano.

Mike, that a long "A" there. As in zam-BRAUN-o.

This concludes today's Spanish lesson. Thank you.
